In 2009 singer/songwriter Kris Schubert joined with his partner Lian Wong and brother in law Steve Helman to form The Safety of Life at Sea. Drummer Tony 'T-Bone' Bibby was soon invited along, to help them make some more noise. Playing original songs penned by both Kris and Steve, the music covers a wide mix of styles, with influences from folk, blues and 60's/70's pop rock.

Their debut album was begun in a small, picturesque Blue Mountains studio in late 2011, as Steve prepared to live overseas. Work continued in both Australia and France over the next year, and was completed soon after the band was reunited, ready to be launched in 2013.

The 10 song album moves between the rushed, stream-of-conciousness Go Let Go to the laid back bouncy groove of Tea From a Height, and later to the insistent and moody rock of End of December.

Just prior to the launch of the album in June, the band retreated to a barn in a beautiful Hawkesbury valley to begin what will become their second album, featuring new guitarist and songwriter Dom White. This follow up is expected in 2014. Now with three songwriters, new material is coming thick and fast, and the gigs just keep getting better.
